Make Your Mark – Leave A Lasting Legacy

“I strongly encourage you to give to the SHBC Foundation! Because it is a permanent fund, it is a terrific way to literally give a gift that will keep on giving- a legacy that will follow you for generations to come in the life of our church. And, what most people don’t know is that with proper planning you can design your giving in such a way that you can bless your church with a significant gift without giving any less to your family!” – Pastor Hess
